NORCAL has sent us this pic of a light he encountered. It's hard to tell where the "hack" left off, and the "violator" began frown

At least they used a breaker... What, did they have one phase of the panel hot, and the other side grounded?

The Keyless and other prehistoric electrical items have nothing to do w/ the intended subject, which is the QO and the lugs that some bleeping moron used, just used what was handy to prop up the 2 leads off the breaker.

what size wire are they attempting to use there?? It doesn't look any bigger that #12 and that QO should be able to handle that... So what is the point of the lugs Rollie?

I have no idea, it was in a swimming pool control center, other lugs ran to a time switch QO lugs are decent, no reason to use those lugs,IMO.

I can tell you a few makers here wink

Y adaptor: Hemco TWIN-LITE
Socket adapters: Hubbell T-Slots
The outlet/socket rig looks like it's a Leviton?

Thought ive seen a few nutty things im my time but this is a good one. What kind of nut would even take the trouble to design and put together something like this. Looking forward to bringing a copy of this to my next code class.

Looks like this guy liked to burn houses, fry himself and cook whatever he plugged in. That looks like a double pole breaker.... those sockets are getting 240V!

Amazing display of stupidity, but I think I've seen worse in lab some days!
